RISMEDIA, October 13, 2010–Gloria Nilson, REALTORS®, Real Living is proud to announce that it has ranked among the Top 100 firms in sales volume for 2009 in RISMedia’s 22nd Annual Power Broker Report & Survey. Gloria Nilson, REALTORS®, Real Living ranked 94 in sales volume among the 1,200 respondents to the 2010 Power Broker Report, which identifies and ranks America’s largest residential real estate brokerage companies by transaction sides and sales volume.
“Appearing RISMedia’s 2010 Power Broker Report is more important than ever,” explains RISMedia President & CEO John Featherston. “By ranking the industry’s leading brokerages by sales dollar volume and transaction, we have been able to identify the leaders in real estate year after year. It’s a great way to show consumers that the real estate industry is still open for business. Being among the top 100 brokers in sales volume nationally is a sure way to gain the trust of speculative clients, and differentiate your firm from the competition,” Featherston continued.
According to the very encouraging results of RISMedia’s 22nd Annual Power Broker Survey, more than 1,200 real estate firms weighed in on their success in 2009, reporting a total $585,508,645,713 in sales volume. Although this total sales volume is down over 2008, overall transactions for 2009 have increased by more than 100,000. The increase in number of transactions is a healthy step toward moving more properties off the market, reducing inventory and stabilizing prices.
“We are extremely proud of our achievement in 2009. Ranking as high as we did on the Power Broker Report is a true testament to our hard work, and it further validates our leadership position in our marketplace,” said Dick Schlott, CEO of Gloria Nilson, REALTORS®, Real Living and RLS, REALTORS®, Real Living.
For years, the nation’s top real estate brokers have sought to be included in the report—an indispensable reference tool used by the real estate industry. RISMedia’s Power Broker Report is read by more than 300,000 real estate professionals, thousands of leading corporate relocation decision makers and is accessible online to millions of interested consumers.
The Power Broker Report & Survey is compiled annually by RISMedia and is based on data collected by an annual survey of leading residential real estate brokerage firms. All sales and transaction volume comes directly from brokerages and is verified and substantiated by external sources, in most cases accounting firms, prior to publication.
